he don't use tissue, or his sleeve / he don't use napkins, or any of these
he uses...
...magazines x5 (on fourth time, play intro/main part)

i know a girl who reminds me of cher
she's always changing the colour of her hair
but she don't use nothin' you buy at the store
she likes her hair to be real orange
she uses tangerines

play the main riff and you're done.
